bereft. all i have to say is neener, we have your jacki. jacki schechner in the newsroom. what are you doing for lunch today? well at 12:30 eastern time the president will sit down with mitt romney. there will be no press in attendance. he's meeting with the 12 nobel prize winners at 12:15 but then a post election niceties. there is no agenda. the white house spokesman said the president would wouldn't mind talking to mitt romney about ways to make the government more efficient. the president is will be meeting with paul tonko in the fiscal cliff negotiations. the man who had a tattoo on his
face for the election removed. the r now stands for the man who was running for election but also the man who is a sore loser. it's been four years since hillary clinton ran for president, but she's still carrying $70,000 in campaign debt. secretary of state mrs. clinton is not allowed to do any campaigning for herself so it is up to her husband bill to try to get that number down when she ran for president back in 2008, she ended up racking up $25 million. again that number is to about $73,000 about four years later. you can join us on chat which is

>> stephanie: let's review. >> it's the only thing if you're mitt romney, i actually was laughing my tail off watching the republicans castigate romney. it's kind of like blaming a chamaeleon for being green for its surroundings. >> stephanie: we'll get to this. but his adviser bragged about losing the poor and minority voters to obama. he said it was basically the victory for romney because he won the right kind of voters. >> when they say mitt romney shouldn't say that stuff they do believe it. they just think it's embarrassing. >> stephanie: all the wrong people voted for president obama. >> we'll say it a little bit. >> stephanie: andy barowitz tweets that mitt romney will speak to a black person for the
first time since the debates.

word to the president again. >> tom cole. >> sound byte: in my view we all agree we're not going to raise taxes on people who are making less than $250,000. we should take them out of the discussion right now. >> we should definitely take them out of the discussion that no one is having. it was the president who said, oh five, eight years now no tax increase on people making money over $250,000--under. >> stephanie: boner is standing for tax rates for those that go over. they think that's their main bargaining chip. he said some republicans on the hill operating tax cuts for the highest earners for everyone else. cole believes the reverse is true. i think we have the winning argument--no. many believe raising taxes is
costing jobs. they don't get what the elections said. >> most people voteed for the president of the united states. >> by a large margin. >> stephanie: except the moral victory by romney. >> we've been giving $5 and $10 all this time to get a chance to have meal with barack obama and who would think that mitt romney would win. >> stephanie: how did mittens win. he's always stacked for the top 1%. >> this is milk toast summit. >> stephanie: if jay-z and beyonce is there i'm going to be mad. >> stephanie: this is the star of the morning. the first crack developing among the republicans over whether to accept a deal with the president with allowing the top 2% tax
rates to expire. a loyalist and confidant of john boehner. >> who called it the "so-called 2%," not 2%. nothing in math is so-called. >> there you go again with liberal numbers. >> stephanie: the house republicans reportedly conservative representative labrador you he, he always served with senator sharpei. no he's from idaho representative labrador. >> oh, okay. >> stephanie: he said he's opposes cole's idea and the majority also opposes. it's hard to know if that means anything. >> what is happening is very simple. you have a cluster of house republicans who will come out and say that their party should compromise. the only people who are going to do that are people who are worried about re-election in
in 2014. and it's a small enough number of people that the volume will not get us a compromise, but it will save their tails for re-election. >> stephanie: right, right. the president talking about this whole situation. >> obama: if congress does nothing every family in member will see their taxes automatically go up at the beginning of next year. >> stephanie: so what is your guess? >> you say that like it's a bad thing. >> stephanie: what is your guess on how this is going to play out and when. >> i think republicans are going to blink. i think they have to. but i was talking to the other somebody the other day and they said do you think the president should be campaigning around the country? it's about time. he should be out there on the stump just like the campaign, and that's when he's at his best, and that's when the republicans are on the ropes. >> stephanie: it's a different reality now. despite what they have to say they always have something to to
say that is the same thing. are you okay? you're giving me that look. >> i got a late start on the stream because i was running around looking for headphones. >> stephanie: here is the president again. >> obama: again i'm asking congress to listen to people who sent us here to serve. i'm asking americans all across the country to make your voice heard. tell members of congress what a tax hike would mean to you. call your members of congress, write them, e-mail, post it on their facebook walls. you can tweet it using the hash tag "my 2 k." not "y 2 k." >> great, mitch mcconnell is watching his vcr to make sure that it doesn't explode. >> stephanie: why can't i get it to stop flashing the time. >> i don't understand--i tried
putting lettuce in there. it seemed to do the trick. >> stephanie: oh, karl, what is your take on what nancy pelosi said yesterday. you know it will make our friends on the liberal side crazy. she said the starting point should be the framework discussed by the president and boner back in 2011 at which time the democrats were willing to consider some things to do with social security and medicare curbing the inflation adjustment and lifting eligibility age for medicare. some democrats say that should be off the table. >> i think it should be off the table, but i think there are ways to bring republicans to the table. and it's by being out there aggressively articulating what happened in the election and what the consequences are. karl rove said elections have consequences. republicans never seem to get
consequences from the elections. they have a partyelections. >> stephanie: the americans voted. >> and they said we have made a decision and raise taxes. you know people didn't like george bush but they believed him when they said he was going to do something, and he got reelected. >> cenk: sadly. >> yes he did mean it. i i will private advertise social security. no you won't but we believe it's a good idea. off to a roll licking start with karl frisch. karl frisch are on gotomeeting 24/7, aren't we? >> we are. >> stephanie: that's how we stay connected because i can never see your beautiful shiny face. >> i use powder. >> stephanie: it's clear i'm not used to seeing him except in hd.

[ world news music ] >> stephanie: it becomes more and more an alternate reality our world and right wing world. bragging about losing poor minority voters. they need to stop talking about why they lost. >> i would be down for that. >> stephanie: yeah, yeah. mitt romney can take solace in his devastating loss because he won the voters who really count according to the thesis of his top adviser stewart stevens. >> that's the guy who put clint eastwood up there. >> stephanie: despite that idea, he lost. >> and he'll never work in republican politics ever again. >> stephanie: he wrote arguing winning wealthier and whiter voters romney secured the moral
victory over obama. how can i take what romney said and make it even more-- >> we made the white decisions--the right decisions. >> stephanie: that's even doucher. he said on november 6th romney carried the majority of every economic group except less than $50,000, income, that means he carried the majority. the republican party has problems but a we go forward let's remember any party that captures the majority of the middle class must be doing something right republican ideals, mitt romney carried the day. >> in other words, eat the poor. >> stephanie: and spread them into mulch. >> at what point do they not go in a padded room. we won all the electoral votes from the state of delusion. >> stephanie: i love the
analysis. implied argument that poorer votessers are inferior, further they write unfortunately for romney, poor minority votes are the same as the votes-- >> yes our election system is made up that way. >> my understanding was there was a poll tax sometime. >> stephanie: i was only told there was opposite progression. i wasn't told that they were going to be able to vote. gene in illinois, you're on with karl. >> caller: good morning, testify any. first-time caller. >> stephanie: yes. >> caller: guys are talking about entitlement reform, and there should be some entitlement reform but they should start with congressmen and senators retirement in medical benefits that they get before they pick
on the poor people. >> why pick on the congressmen. they get vested after four years in office. other workers work a lifetime to build up a pension. >> stephanie: yes, let's run it like hostess. let's suck the union pension dry, give it to the ceo and then blame it on the unions. >> if you're a politician who is large and in charge or whatever, then it works well for you. >> stephanie: yes, exactly. >> i think we would get pretty good results from government at that point. >> stephanie: that seems to be their tag line, screw you. that's more succinct, screw you. we're back with the right-wing world with karl frisch on "the stephanie miller show."

>> stephanie: me too. >> caller: i just want to make a point that i haven't seen or heard much about during the debates paul ryan said that 97% and 98% of employers are small businesses. that would make small business owners who are more likely middle class the actual job creators, not the top percentage that claims they are. >> stephanie: wait, now wait a minute. go back, i'm sorry? >> caller: if 97% and 98% of all employers in the country are small businesses. >> stephanie: then the top 2% are job creators. >> they are job creators, but they don't create nearly any jobs. >> the two 2% are money hoarders. that should be a new reality show. there's that middle income
family job right on top of a cat. >> stephanie: and they use job creator business loose. let's dive into the right-wing world. charles k routhammer. >> sound byte: obama understand this. he's not trying to fix our fiscal issues and problems, he's trying to destroy the republicans by insisting there is a split among the republicans on this issue that has held them together the same way he destroyed senior bush sr. when he went back on the pledge he made. this is an attack on the republicans. there is no evidence that he is interested in the real fiscal issue because he would have to talk about spending entitlements, and he isn't. >> no evidence? >> stephanie: yes, he is. >> that's like republicans saying there is no evidence for climate change and all you have to do is look at his face as
it's melting right off his skull. >> stephanie: like "raiders of lost ark." >> why would grover norquist be out there saying they better stay in line if there were no emerging split. >> stephanie: thank you. he's on tv almost every day with a different lie. >> and you know he doesn't belong on television. >> he's badder. >> please. >> stephanie: fox news. >> sound byte: the united states still is the idea of equality of opportunity, not the equality of outcome. what you have is a mod raid democratic party which is not your father's democratic party. you now have a democratic party so far to the left that they believe in fundamentally anti-american concepts of radical wealth redistribution in order to equalize everyone. that's not what america is about. >> that's not what they're about. you just made that up. >> you pulled that out of that shapely ass. >> stephanie: wow, that was a
moment. >> wealth distribution is how she got her job. if fox did not redistrict their wealth into her pocket, i would see her on barham. >> stephanie: people who are not from la are so cute. >> he is from la. >> i'm from the other side. >> stephanie: you're so 310 snobby. i'm not a 818-er. >> we just loft everyone. >> stephanie: we lost everyone in the valley. you know, i think these election results demonstratebly moved to the right. the republican party has move to the right. >> we have more freedom than we've ever had as a country. you go back to the 60s and there are all kinds of things that would be illegal or you couldn't do in the 60s that
you have the freedom to do today not to mention how much more freedom you can participate in if you're well, if you have healthcare. it's ridiculousness. >> stephanie: anthony on the slide. >> sound byte: "time" magazine has announced the people who have been nominated for person of the year. one of them was sandra fluke, yes. i think that breitbart sums it up very well. "time" makes her person of the year. and in the time of independent voter they might be right. what a terrible person to elevate, a woman who said i need the government. i need help. i can't afford my own birth control. >> stephanie: it's amazing that they keep misconstruing someone testifying how a friend of hers needs birth control for endomitriosis. >> that's a liberal made up
disease. >> there are a few things that are obvious. what sandra fluke is fighting for. the second, yet again taking precisely what mitt romney said about the 47% and about why he lost the election, and the entire right wing pretends mitt romney is crazy. we don't believe that, and here they are articulating that very point. >> stephanie: how many ways can they put into in the word. you lost women voters by how much? >> and they're getting ready not to have any women committee chairs. >> yes all old white man. >> stephanie: rush limbaugh. >> sound byte: there are only two things that can get votes for the republicans. one, men marrying these women so they're no longer single. and so that their lives provide what they want. if they stay single, they're
going to turn to government to provide what they want. and then the republicans are going to figure out that in order to get the votes of those people they're going to do what they want, which is democrats have already laid claim to. >> yes stephanie. you're sucking off the government teet. >> stephanie: right. >> didn't it sound like rush was on the market again? >> cenk: what's >> stephanie: what's going on, trouble in paradise. >> stephanie: some of the single women with jobs. not everyone is on government assistance. i know it's crazy. >> those that are, a lot of them are there not by choice. >> exactly. they don't want to be there. >> stephanie: would anyone like some of my government cheese for breakfast. >> i think cory booker should challenge rush limbaugh to go on food stamps.
>> cory booker is going on food stamps for a month. >> he has to live on $32 a week. >> he won't have the strength to rescue people from burning buildings any more. i think he should reconsider. >> when you only have 32% to spend on food, you buy the cheapest stuff, which is crap if. >> i don't know how rush could survive on that. >> where is my caviar. >> stephanie: i would miss his girlish figure. i was just reading about this. he's at it again. the very very reverend rick warren. >> sound byte: it wouldn't bother me if there was quote here's what we know about life. i have all kinds of natural feelings in my life and it doesn't necessarily mean that i should act on every feeling. sometimes i get angry and i feel like punching a guy in the nose. it doesn't mean i act on it. sometimes as you pointed out
sometimes i fell attracted to women who are not my wife. i don't act on them. just because i have a feeling doesn't make it right. not everything natural is good for me. arsenic-- >> stephanie: so let's just-- >> arsenic is. >> stephanie: being gay like punching a guy in the nose or consumer arsenic. >> it is kind of like punching a guy in the nose because i have a natural feeling to do that to rick warner. although it sounded like he was trying to cover something up. >> stephanie: can they stop comparing gay to things that are not like being gay. >> the right wing movement, and yes it is, busters listen up. they lay so much gay bait that you would think they run a wine and cheese shop. they can no longer go out there and punch us in the face. they can't gay bash us and use the words that they want to use so they have to compare us to
other things that don't seem as threatening. it used to be alcohol and drug addicts. now it's natural human instincts like wanting to punch somebody apparently. >> stephanie: this week he similarly defended his anti-gay position by claiming he can be tolerant and accepting without being approving. can i tell you how much i hate that language. i don't care to be tolerated by anybody. i'm not asking you to tolerate me. and then in one breath he'll say that. you can be loving and tolerant and accepting. four years ago he defended prop 8 by claiming same sex marriage is equivalent to incest, pedophilia and polygamy. >> and then he said, well, i didn't mean that to be public. >> well, that makes it so much better. >> that makes it worse. that's like the guy saying
racist things who says he is not a racist. >> stephanie: he's comparing to punching a buy guy in the nose, incest and pedophilia and polygamy. >> but i tolerate it. >> i don't want to take a page out of his book, but i'll compare him to other televised preachers, jim bakker. >> stephanie: talking about his anti-a.i.d.s. work in africa. a.i.d.s. is not a gay disease. >> no. >> stephanie: but he has ties to anti-gay leaders who opposed using condoms to prevent the spread of-- >> yes um, hundred. >> sound byte: a lot of people for whatever reason will look at
this interview and say gretchen carlson are so nuts because they think there is this made up war on christmas. we're not nuts. there is a war on christmas. >> oh, my god really? we're back to that. >> stephanie: that is so moldy. it's like people take it every year out of the addict. again the war on christmas. >> like the drone strike on christmas. >> you know some people have the advent calendar? they have the invent calendar. >> stephanie: chip in at the buzzer by karl frisch right back on "the stephanie miller show"." >> sound byte: that was strangely arousing. >> announcer: it's the stephanie miller show. out for us.
going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us.

first question is do you really think that the republicans aren't aware of what's happening? what happened with this last election, or is it that they just don't care? >> well, i think they think they can lie their way through it. >> stephanie: they're in the denial stage. >> caller: so you're saying they don't care and they're willing to lie-- >> i think they're lying to themselves. >> in order for them to change they need to hurt now. that means shunting off 30% of their base vote. if they do that, they're going to hurt for a while. if they don't they're going to hurt for the foreseeable future. what you see are right wing republicans who are failing to acknowledge what happened in november and it's just a power play. they've still got that-- >> there is a difference that they're failing to acknowledge and not understanding. i've been studying behavioral psychology for the last two
decades trying to understand our species' ridiculous behavior, including my own and have observed a growing seeming pathological disregard for the rights of the less and affluent. in combination with some really dumb and utterly dishonest crap that like the stuff that fox news has the audacity to broadcast. >> if you were on fox, they would cut you right now. >> caller: i bet they were. they're a bunch of thugs and i would love a face-to-face interview with bill o'reilly. >> stephanie: oh dear. >> all right, all right and then i want some ice tea. >> see how he's controlling his natural inclination to want to purge somebody. >> stephanie: exactly. >> therefore, i want more iced tea. >> have you heard that a lot?
>> stephanie: studying behavioral psychology, they're in the denial stage. >> there is a book called "the republican brain" by chris moody and it talks about what happens when republicans have their back up against the wall. they have an instinct to become more rigid and not change. >> stephanie: like this op-ed really mitt romney won. he won the moral victory because he won the right kind of voters. you shake your head sadly no, you're in denial. he lost badly. >> stephanie: karla in georgia you're on "the stephanie miller show." >> caller: i'm so grateful for your show, mama, and the boys. i watch you every day. i have a statement and then a question i really need answered. the statement is i need the g.o.p. we all need the g.o.p. to stop. we're tired of the lying and we're tired of hearing nothing.
we definitely need to spend tax money on the g.o.p. bill i heard someone say a rubber room. >> stephanie: that's a padded room. >> caller: let's go for the whole hospital. there's too many for one room. >> stephanie: what's your question. >> caller: my question is i would like to know if there is a legal way to stop them from lying? why aren't they prosecuted? we can't lie under oath, why can our politicians. >> stephanie: karla, you are so sweet. so quaint and adorable. >> if they were under oath. >> someone should pass a law. >> stephanie: can we stop republicans from lying. that is precious. >> just remember when you see their lips move, you know they're lying. >> they're politicians for god god's sake. by letting the bush tax cuts expire they get trillions of revenue while preserveing tax cuts for the 98%. how can you be except that?
>> stephanie: it's so wear to see a moment of naivete from jim. close the door. >> close the door, wow. >> stephanie: karl, before we go, what is your take on this susan rice thing susan collins now expressing that she's also troubled. >> i'm very troubled. >> stephanie: here's what i don't get, wouldn't he be nominated for secretary of defense any way? >> there's been speculation that he would go up for either one of them. i think he would be perfectly godgood at either one of them, but it all comes down to them not liking susan rice and wanting to blame her for things that happened in the 90s too. >> stephanie: she was also responsible for the coal bomb,. >> we need help with women let's go after one. >> stephanie: yes, exactly. karl frisch, you are delightful.

public wants which is to let the taxes go up on the top 2% and protecting the middle class. politico seems to think that we're closer to a deal an statements would indicate. it thinks we'll get a tax hike shy of $1.2 trillion and then a cut to social programs by no less than $400 million. that in my opinion would be be a big mistake. more and more are breaking away from the grover norquist tax pledge. it's like they're all suddenly discovering this pledge is not actually legally binding in any way. other republican members of congress coming forward gibson who signed the fledge last year. tom cole has been taking heat from john boehner who said that
